Painkiller Expansion 'Redemption' Due Next Week

BOOM widget 382339

Publisher DreamCatcher has announced that the new standalone Painkiller expansion Redemption will be released on February 25--the same week as the new shooter from Painkiller creator People Can Fly, Bulletstorm, comes out.

Unlike People Can Fly's new baby, Painkiller - Redemption is a budget-priced affair, currently listed by GamersGate at only $4.99. Developed by a team of modders, Redemption was initially conceived as a mod for the dire Painkiller Resurrection.

Painkiller - Redemption packs an estimated 7-10 hours of playtime, with over 6,000 enemies across six maps. There's also a map editor, so you can make your own.

While the Painkiller series has undoubtedly declined sharply in quality over the course of its life, for $5 you might get a satisfying amount of shooting from Redemption.
